Glenturk Farmhouse is situated adjacent to the A714, less than two miles from Scotland’s Book town Wigtown. A small rural town which becomes a hive of activity for 10 days between the end of September and beginning of October as well known, and local speakers, take the stage during the annual Book Festival. Wigtown is home to many bookshops and cafes, with the famous Bladnoch Distillery located just outside the town. Wigtown also hosts its own agricultural show in early August.
Newton Stewart, approximately five miles north offers a wider range of shops and offices, including a leisure centre, secondary school and supermarkets.
Glenturk Farmhouse is an impressive two storey house with stunning views of the Galloway Hills, Wigtown Bay and the surrounding countryside. Four reception rooms provide generous living space for both family life and entertaining, enhanced by the layout which flows throughout the property. Bi fold doors open from the Mozolowski & Murray Conservatory into the Sitting Room, creating one large room, perfect for large family gatherings. The double aspect Kitchen has a warm country kitchen ambience and features include a Rangemaster cooker with a five ring induction hob, two ovens and a grill and a Belfast style sink. Glenturk Farmhouse is double glazed throughout, with the exception of the Kitchen, Bedroom 1 and Bedroom 2, windows in these rooms are triple glazed. Oil fired central heating is powered by a Worcester Bosch boiler and water is on a metered supply. Around two acres of land is included in the sale, which sits to the right of the Farmhouse and can be accessed by a gate at the rear of the property and from the Garden. Glenturk Farm and two holiday cottages sit to the left and rear of the property, a separate road has recently been created, to ensure that traffic is directed away from the Farmhouse.
A field shelter or stable could easily be built close to the house for those seeking equestrian use.
The Garden stretches out between the Farmhouse and the main road, lawn forms the centre of the garden, surrounded by a path, with a selection of mature trees and shrubs. A stunning Camelia blooms in the spring alongside the daffodils providing a beautiful array of colour. A gravel area with a selection of borders, a rockery and patio area complement the traditional style garden. The paddock can be accessed via a gate from the garden.
